         Keyboard Shortcuts
         Adobe Photoshop Elements 7
         Adobe Photoshop Elements is a powerful program with many commands, which
         sometimes can be time consuming to access. Most menu commands have a key-
         board equivalent, known as a keyboard shortcut, as a quicker alternative to using
         the mouse. For example, if you want to open a new document in the Editor in Pho-
         toshop Elements, you click the File menu, point to New, and then click Blank File, or
         you can abandon the mouse and press Ctrl+N to use shortcut keys. Using shortcut
         keys reduces the use of the mouse and speeds up operations. If a command on a
         menu includes a keyboard reference, known as a keyboard shortcut, to the right of
         the command name, you can perform the action by pressing and holding the first
         key, and then pressing the second key to perform the command quickly. In some
         cases, a keyboard shortcut uses three keys. Simply press and hold the first two keys,
         and then press the third key. Keyboard shortcuts provide an alternative to using the
         mouse and make it easy to perform repetitive commands.
